Buddy of the Legion Review
Buddy of the Legion is a 1935 animated short film from the Looney Tunes series. It is a pretty solid Buddy entry.
Buddy transports to the Arabian desert by reading a book in a store that he was supposed to watch over. I’ve seen this type of film before, but I’ve always liked a premise like that so I liked this film too. It is nothing original and Buddy is as bland as ever when he needed to have been stronger here in particular, but the plot is solid and the ending is very good.
I liked the use of the store and that matron lady was memorable. The animation is okay, if nothing spectacular and the action should have been better. But I liked the Arabian part quite a bit as it was a lot of fun and actually very well executed. The film has ingredients for greatness, but had it had more humor and a more memorable protagonist, it would have been much better.
Buddy of the Legion is solid and fun, but not as great as it could have been anyway.
